Alienor Hathaway in from Barnsdale, Yorkshire in the early years of Queen Elizabeth's reign. Her mother is French. Her father was a spice merchant that traveled frequently when she was a child. As a consequence, she saw a world beyond Barnsdale. Her father eventually rose to his position at court due to an outbreak of the sweating illness that took the senior line of the family. Alienor benefited from the education provided to highborn ladies of her time but especially loved music and the humanities. Alienor also often portrays her own ancestor and dresses in 12th-century attire.

Preferred titles and pronouns
Alienor has recently chosen to use "Lady Alienor" as her title because "Honorable" would not have been used in Tudor England. She uses standard English feminine pronouns (she/her/hers).
In Case of Court
Alienor loves ceremonial occasions. She prefers to be surprised. Artisans using their creativity to whatever art they choose is humbling and amazing. She would love to have historical inspiration made available to her. She would appreciate informing her husband, Edward Talbot, or her Laurel, Master Tiberius Iulius Rufus.
